YAROSLAVL, July 15 (Itar-Tass) - The Yaroslavl region court upheld the arrest of Yaroslavl mayor Yevgeny Urlashov, accused of attempted bribe taking.
The lawyer insisted on bail or house arrest. During the two-hour hearing, the lawyer lodged several petitions, and showed the pledge by business tycoon Mikhail Prokhorov who said he was ready to pay 10 million roubles for Urlashov's release on bail.
"I'm confident I'll be able to prove my innocence and urge the court to be humane. I ask for another measure of restraint," Urlashov said in his final statement.
However, the court upheld the district court's decision under which the mayor would remain in custody until September 2, 2013.
Urlashov was arrested on July 5. Attempted bribery charges were brought against the mayor, his deputy Dmitry Donskov, head of Town Hall's agency for municipal procurements Maxim Poikalainen, and mayor's advisor Alexei Lopatin. Andrei Zakharov was accused of "attempted mediation of bribe."
